people died. that is more than 50% of the entire total population who died in new york city during hurricane sandy in october. this borough was devastated. staten island is used to being ignored because it's the smallest borough and it is not being ignored anymore. they're doing a great job of clearing this street so looks like they've had about 8 to 10 inches. the winds haven't been that heavy compared to connecticut, massachusetts and rhode island and a lot of people here who were anxious before this are breathing a sigh of relief. right here you can see there were many houses in this block that were destroyed. this was a house when hurricane sandy came through and no longer is. it is rubble. the house right next door was heavily damaged and people have been busily repairing it hoping to move in this week. it looks like they won't be able because they were afraid of the blizzard and hope to move in monday they were telling us. they've had a lot of tough times lately. they're very grateful at this point it doesn't appear the storm is as serious in this particular area as they thou

the city of providence, the state of rhode island is trying to deal with this morning. that is massive power outages, wet, thick snow falling on trees, on power lines. it means about nearly 200,000 homes here in rhode island are without power. that is what they're dealing with at this hour. some good news, some of those bridges out to places like newport, rhode island, have reopened. they closed late last night because of these sustained 58-mile-per-hour wind gusts we were getting. those have reopened. i-95, that huge interstate through massachusetts, connecticut, rhode island still closed, though. roads here in providence closed a's well since 5:00 eastern right now. illegal to be out driving on them. stay home. even though it looks better, stay home. we had a chance last night to hang out with this guy, let's bring him into the picture, colonel pete gaynor, who heads emergency transportation. snow plows, gps tracking their every move. you were up all night. give us a sense of the situation now here in providence and broader rohode island. where does it stand? >> it's been a long nigh

of newark? >> the conditions are worsening. walked through all five wards of the city and checked on the crews and the conditions on the street. a lot of stranded cars now. a lot of people out that shouldn't be. so it's very perilous out there and people need to understand that. stay indoofrs and hunker down for the night. conditions will be bad throughout the morning tomorrow. this is not time to take this lightly. very dangerous conditions, especially around motor vehicle accidents. and we areal also on alert for possible power outages in newark if the wind starts to pick up. i'm grateful for the hundreds of workers we have out there from law enforcement to folks plowing and salting streets. a lot of work ahead. >> as the sun will begin to rise in a couple of hours is when, as you mentioned, we will get a better chance to see the damage done. hopefully the streets are cleared. first responders can get out and about. what's the biggest challenge, you think, come tomorrow morning? >> i think it is the mess and getting rid of this from our streets. and hopefully people will stay in

. >> stay off the city streets. >> if you don't have to drive, please remain home. >> the rate of snowfall and reduced visibility during the evening rush hour in particular, will make safe travel nearly impossible. >> in fact, governor patrick of massachusetts has banned all traffic from the roads as of three hours ago. this video from before that order took effect is believed to be the first statewide driving ban since 1978. break it, and you risk a $500 fine. trains are not much of an option in the heavily traveled northeast either. amtrak suspending much of its northeast rail service today. and if you are trying to fly, two or from anywhere in this region, as new yorkers would say forgeta about it. airlines have canceled thousands of flights for today and tomorrow. here is what it looks like right now right around the corner in times square, new york. we are in a bit of a lull right now as predicted. they are expecting it to hit full force about an hour from now. after that first alert forecasters say we could see one to two inches of snow per hour all night long. other areas could see

on the streets, you see cabs. not so much right now, huh? >> new york city, right? the city that never sleeps. this is a city that is in the middle of a deep slumber. when was the last time you saw the streets practically empty. look at the circle, columbus circle, practically empty. a couple cabs, maybe a snow plow if you're lucky, maybe a city bus. empty. it's like a white christmas today. isn't it? a winter wonderland. it is cold, i'll tell you that, but it's snowing and it's a quiet snow. not much wind going on. so really kind of a calm overhang on this evening in the middle of the night. the snow, though, is continuing to pile up. what i find interesting, though, is i really haven't seen many snow plows go by and the city has promised they were on patrol as of 7:00 tonight. perhaps they're in the boroughs in the neighborhoods making their way through. one interesting difference to this year, though, different from the blizzard that hit here in 2010, the city's kind of learned about it, learned from its mistakes, they have got kind of, brooke, a gps tracker of where the snow plows are. so

city's central park. my colleague, erica hill is, might i point out warm inside studio 1a. good morning. >> who drew the short straw? good morning. good morning to everyone at home. forecasters warning this storm would be a powerhouse. they were right on target. not very far from studio 1a, we have a look for you at times square. the crews there hard at work cleaning up the snow. also look for you in new jersey, strong winds and surf clashing along the jersey shore. and i do have to point out, when we first came in and you saw that shot of rockefeller plaza, you didn't see snow. that's because they have been up since the wee hours getting rid of all the white stuff. it almost looks as if there was no storm outside studio 1a. it's pretty amazing. >> yeah. let's bring folks up to date with the latest now, erica. at least one person is reported dead after a traffic accident in upstate new york. the snowfall totals across the northeast are substantial. in parts of connecticut, nearly three feet has fallen. boston and portland, maine, have reported snowfalls of up to 25 inches. here in new y

there with the the snow blowers and shovels clearing it for the guests. but a lot of the city sidewalks have not been touched. a couple right here behind me walking in the street. the streets have become the sidewalks. obviously people who have pets have to come outside to let their pets do what they need to do. and the street's the best place to do it. we are starting to see some traffic. and i believe that's interstate 95 over here to my left. i am seeing cars and trucks passing down through the interstate. but keep in mind that it's going to be awhile. i don't know if governor chaffey is going to open the roadways back up today. again the priority is to get the roadways cleared. it's going to be tougher for crews to do that if people decide let's go out and take a look and see how bad things are. they want you to stay home. give them a day. and then maybe tomorrow things are going to be a little bit better. >> stay home. watch it on tv. you can get out perhaps better tomorrow. ron mott thanks for the report. >>> let's go to another area buried under deep snow. that's connecticut. we have nbc's ron

city and is a fellow at the roosevelt institute. susan crawford, welcome. >> thank you so much. >> "captive audience?" who's the captive? >> us, all of us. what's happened is that these enormous telecommunications companies, comcast and time warner on the wired side, verizon and at&t on the wireless side, have divided up markets, put themselves in the position where they're subject to no competition and no oversight from any regulatory authority. and they're charging us a lot for internet access and giving us second class access. this is a lot like the electrification story from the beginning of the 20th century. initially electricity was viewed as a luxury. so when f.d.r. came in, 90% of farms didn't have electricity in america at the same time that kids in new york city were playing with electric toys. and f.d.r. understood how important it was for people all over america to have the dignity and self-respect and sort of cultural and social and economic connection of an electrical outlet in their home. so he made sure to take on the special interests that were controlling elec

in front of city hall. and i haven't seen more than two people here in, i guess since about 5:00 eastern last night. i want to show you what's happening at the end of the block because an hour ago we couldn't see the end of the block and now we can. we're seeing it's getting clearer here, we're not seeing those massive wind gusts, things seem to have turned the corner here, but now the big concern is what do you do about all the homes without power? 187,000 and counting. that's the number as of 6:00 a.m. eastern of homes in rhode island without power and the power company national grid facing a very big uphill battle here. that is a very big portion of the population of rhode island. if you look relatively speaking, it's the hardest hit in terms of how many people without power relatively speaking here. why did that happen? all last night it was relatively warm. so the snow was wet and heavy and fell on those power lines, trees knocked them out. i spent last night talking to the governor, the state, the mayor of providence, rhode island. the emergency manager here and all of them had tha

in new york city, up to about a foot of snow. power has been knocked out to nearly 650,000 customers, most of them in massachusetts and rhode island, and more than 1,800 flights canceled so far, that on top of the 3,600 that never took off on friday in advance of the pieces of storm, erica. >> you can understand why this storm is giving snow plows, snow blowers and shovels a real run for their money. also adding to the wintry mess here on the ground, hurricane-force winds in some areas, creating blizzard conditions. out on long island, up to 100 cars stuck for hours, in what is normally a busy expressway. talk about the size of the storm. look at this. it really gives you a sense, as it spreads across the region. these are scenes from states, making its way up the east coast. all that you can make up from the eastern portion of the united states is the tip of florida there, lester. >> yes this is a massive one. coverage across the northeast this morning. reporters standing by in hartford and boston. let me show you what's going on in central park. in many ways, this belies the danger
